Urban Heat Islands
The first International Conference on Countermeasures to Urban Heat Islands (IC2UHI) was held in 2006 in Tokyo (Japan) and since then it has been hosted at various locations, in Berkeley (California), Venice (Italy), Singapore and Hyderabad (India).
It is time to adopt an interdisciplinary framework considering the synergies between different disciplines such as energy, health, building, urban design, air quality and human studies.
The 6th International Conference on Countermeasures to Urban Heat Islands (6th IC2UHI), will be hosted in Melbourne, Australia and will be devoted to the science, design, engineering and public policies in relation to the interdisciplinary nature of effectively addressing urban heat island effects in our cities.
Scientists, academics, engineers, builders, architects, policy makers and government officials are invited to participate in 6th IC2UHI Conference to share their knowledge about activities that have been or will be undertaken to address urban heat islands.
The diverse range of themes in this conference will broaden the scope and knowledge on new approaches, findings and evidence around countermeasures to urban heat islands.
